Inspired by Academy Award® and Golden Globe®-nominee Ridley Scott and Academy Award-winner Kevin Macdonald’s highly successful Life in a Day, CANADA IN A DAY will capture one day in the life of our country, and will air on CTV as part of Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017. CTV also confirmed today that the project’s website, CanadaInADay.ca, is now live.

From countless individual moments and stories, one film will be crafted by director Trish Dolman (Eco-Pirate: The Story of Paul Watson; LUNA: SPIRIT OF THE WHALE) to capture Canada on a single day – engaging people across the country, and Canadians around the world, to share – in any language – their hopes and fears, their personal stories and, in doing so, what it means to be Canadian. From the ordinary to the extraordinary, footage submitted may be included in the final film project set to air on CTV or featured on the film’s online archive at CanadaInADay.ca.
